National Engineering Competition now open for entries

The National Engineering Competition aims to show young people how engineering can make a real difference to people and the planet.

Working individually or in a team of up to six, girls aged 11-18 are invited to create a project that solves the challenges of the 21st century.

This could be an original solution designed from scratch or a project about what engineers are currently doing to solve the challenge. Whether it’s an issue in your local area or something on a global scale, the competition is an opportunity to get creative, get thinking and have fun.

All competition entrants have the opportunity to get a Bronze, Silver or Gold CREST Award. The winner of each category will receive £1,000 (£500 for themselves and £500 for their school), £300 for second place and £150 for third place.

The closing date for entries is 14 December 2018.
